Race GSR125 Test Ride Review - EngineRace GSR 125 is fitted with 125 cc water cooled single cylinder 4 valve engine EURO III engine.The engine is double overhead camshaft& has inner stability balance shaft technology. The engine is also loaded with EFI Marelli system with accurate MIU electrical unit which helps to allow the FI system to give the best amount of fuel to the bike.
Race GSR125 Test Ride Review - StylingRace GSR125 is a huge motorcycle in terms of a 125 cc motorcycle. It is much bigger then Suzuki GSX-R150 & in many ways as big as Honda CBR150R. It features two halogen headlights upfront which give the impression of an owl’s eyes. Tail light is bulb unit so are the indicators. Seating position of the bike is full sporty like Suzuki GSX-R 150. Looking glass of the motorcycle is spread out & you can’t solidly adjust the mirror & the rear visibilities aren’t the best.

Race GSR125 Test Ride Review - Riding ExperienceCity riding experience is not the best, with sporty handle bar & USD front suspension the rider will feel lot of pain on wrist & neck for the first week to adjust the riding of this motorcycle. It is difficult for any rider to ride this motorcycle from one part of Dhaka to another carrying a pillion on a busy working day. Part of the reason is the front suspension which gives feedback on smooth rode but doesn’t work that better on bumpy or roads with potholes. Also the road conditions in Dhaka city aren’t the best followed by the huge traffic congestion. On the highway this is an open machine. The bike will give its best performance on the 4 lane highways of Dhaka – Chittagong & Dhaka – Mymensingh.

Race GSR125 Test Ride Review - Final VerdictRace GSR125 is a full-on sports bike with a range of 250,000 BDT and it is well priced if I compare to the build quality & finishing with CBR150R & V3. The bike lacks practicality & this will be a tough motorcycle to ride in the city but on the open road with good tarmac, this is a very good machine. This is not an everyday use motorcycle but as a tool to make you feel special, this is a fantastic machine.
